Today: Meet Brian Posehn (Deadpool, Sarah Silverman Show) at Third Eye Comics!
Ho Ho Ho Ho-ly Crap, BRIAN POSEHN'S COMING TO THIRD EYE!! It's here, Third Eye Faithful, our special present to you: the biggest Third Eye in-store signing yet, with comedian and DEADPOOL writer BRIAN POSEHN.
This is such a crazy exciting thing for me, I can barely sit still while typing this, and not just 'cause I'm almost through my first pot of coffee for the day.
We've been huge fans of Brian's here at the shop for a long time, I mean, c'mon a comedian who touches on two of our biggest loves? Comics and metal? So, with the date nearing, we're even more stoked to get to share this awesomeness with you guys.
I know I've said it before, but I'll say it again: you guys are what keep us rolling, and YOU are why we are one of the best comic book stores in the world. We wanted to do something awesome for you guys this year, and when the opportunity arose to have Brian in for a signing, we knew we had to make it happen.
This is our last signing of the year, Third Eye Faithful, and we intend to make it a big one. We're looking forward to seeing you all this weekend, and we're well prepared for what we know will be a very busy day.
First off: we will have both registers running, and have a full staff on hand. There'll be at least 7 Third Eye team-members making sure you get helped out.
We also will be handling the line a little more efficiently, to ensure that you guys have plenty of breathing room to shop and have fun while you wait your chance to meet Brian.
We've got a whole rundown below about Brian's work on DEADPOOL, his fantastic Zombie Christmas comic LAST CHRISTMAS, and more!
MARVEL NOW: DEADPOOL! Get Issues 1-3 This Weekend & Have Them Signed By Brian Posehn!
Make Sure To Get Your THIRD EYE COMICS variant!
Third Eye Faithful, while we know there's a ton of you who already got your DEADPOOL issues #1-3 (and of course, the Third Eye variant) to get signed by Brian, we gotta tell those of you who haven't yet: you have to read the new DEADPOOL!
I mean, this book is fantastic, and in our opinion, this is THE best DEADPOOL we've read since the late '90s JOE KELLY run that's now available in the pages of DEADPOOL CLASSIC.
Gerry Duggan and Brian Posehn deliver a legitimately funny, off-the-wall take on the Merc with a Mouth that doesn't shy away from the disturbing nature of the character, and artist Tony Moore (WALKING DEAD) completely wows with the gorgeous, macabre artwork that brings Wade's world to life.
Heck, they've even got Geoff Darrow doing the covers on this one. Geoff freakin' Darrow -- how awesome is that?
But seriously, the first 3 issues of this new run, which feature the Merc with a Mouth getting enlisted to put down a legion of zombified U.S presidents has us hooked. Awesome Marvel guest-stars like Doctor Strange. Awesome moments like President Ford yelling Fiddlesticks. Awesome moments like Deadpool carving his way out of a giant monster's belly. I mean, how can you go wrong?
We've got plenty of copies of DEADPOOL 1-3 in stock and available now to get you caught up to speed this Saturday at the signing.
Make sure to snag yourself a copy of our THIRD EYE variant of DEADPOOL #1, which we're definitely running through quickly. This exclusive cover was done for us by Third Eye favorite, LEGEND OF LUTHER STRODE artist TRADD MOORE, and features DEADPOOL blasting a path through our little blue mascot guys.. but severely mutated into giant monster things. We love it!
OTHER WORKS BY BRIAN POSEHN: LAST CHRISTMAS --
SANTA VS. THE APOCALYPSE? YOU KNOW IT!
Before Gerry Duggan and Brian Posehn paired up on DEADPOOL, the two worked with FEAR AGENT / UNCANNY AVENGERS / CAPTAIN AMERICA writer RICK REMENDER to serve up the total awesomeness that is THE LAST CHRISTMAS.
After the apocalypse -- humanity is without hope: until Santa is pulled from the North Pole and spurred into action. Santa, his elves, and Gary the Snowman take on zombies and Mad Max-style marauders for the fate of a good little boy.
Want something a little more fun to read to the kids on Christmas Eve?
Last Christmas is the book to get. Snag yourself a copy this Saturday, and get Brian to sign it for you!
Be One Of The First 40 In Line
Get a Very Special Free Gift + A FREE Third Eye Comics
Third Eye Faithful, we are totally stoked about this signing, and we know there's going to be a bunch of you guys lining up early, heck, even camping out, so we wanted to do something fun to make your wait even more worth it.
We're going to be giving a very special DEADPOOL free gift to the first 40 folks in line, in addition to a FREE Third Eye Comics t-shirt.
So, make sure you get here early, so you can get hooked up on some fun swag before the doors open for our signing.
Line-up as early as you like, but we will begin handing out the numbered first 40 tickets for the prize giveaway at 7:30AM to those of you who're lined up.
SIGNING INFORMATION (ITEM LIMITS, LINE-UP, ETC.)
Okay, Third Eye Faithful, this is definitely one of the biggest signings that's come to Third Eye, and because of that, we're doing everything we can to make sure everyone gets a chance to have fun and meet Brian Posehn.
So, we've got just a small handful of things for the signing, 'cause we know it's going to be a busy one, and we want to make sure everyone gets to have fun.
Limit of up to 5 items COMIC-related (DEADPOOL / LAST CHRISTMAS) that Brian has worked on per person.
Limit of 1 item that is NON-Comic Related (i.e DVDs of his stand-up, movies he's been in, etc.)
For NOVEMBER TO REMEMBER Pass Holders: you must have your NOVEMBER TO REMEMBER card with the stamps on you at the signing. If there has been an issue with your card, please get in touch with us at the store before the signing this week so we can fix it. We cannot admit you 1 hour early without the card.
The line will be capped at 300 for general admission. We may be able to let more in if time allows, but this is just to ensure that everyone gets to have fun and meet Brian. I do not expect to hit capacity on the line.
You may begin lining up as early as you like. We will be giving numbered tickets out to the first 40 in line beginning at 7:30AM.
On our end, we will have a full staff working this signing, so there'll be plenty of Third Eye team members on hand to make sure you get helped out, and get to have fun.
We've also worked very hard to layout a good line-flow set-up to keep the store from getting crowded, so that you're still able to shop and have fun.
We can't wait to see you all this weekend, it's going to be a real blast!
All right, Third Eye Faithful, I can't think of any other way I'd rather spend my holiday than with all of you guys. You are our family, and we really hope to see you guys come out for this awesome event this weekend. We promise: it's going to be so much fun, heck, this is going to be historic! :)
